ALLDUP Finding Files that are not there

Post by geobrick »

I'm using version 4.5.22 and searching for dups with same name and size.
The results show a match for 2 files that are no longer on the hard drive.
How is that happening?

File names & location?
Might they be hardlinked files?
Might the files have been deleted outside of (& after they had already been found by) Alldup?

And you've verified that they are not in fact on the drive?


Under 'Remove', if you 'Remove all non-existing files from the search result', are those file then gone (from Alldup)?
